    Kowa 883 vs Swaro ATS80HD

    sur-akk, you made the right choice going with the Kowa. Nothing matches the Fluorite lens quality of the Big Kowa. Nothing!

    Zeiss 10x54 HT impressions today

    Sure wish Zeiss would build a 15x54 HT. :cool:

    Thoughts ? on Binocular Colors

    The main reason that you wouldn't want an orange or red binocular for birding is birds can see in color as we do and probably better. I hunt wild turkey and they can see colors at incredible distances. I would not mind an orange binocular for hunting but wouldn't have much success with it...

    John, Thanks for the link on Swarovski. That's the most interesting info on Swarovski I've ever read. (y) I added it to my favorites bar. :cool: Thanks again!

    Glass types in NL Pure-series

    I assume the NL Pure has Schott glass but have never read that it does. Does anyone know for sure?

    NL 10X42 vs NL12X42. What would you choose?

    I would have to go NL 12x42 since I have HT 10x42 already and will never sell them.

    NL Pure 'problems'.

    This thread has cautioned me about buying a pair of NL 12X42s. Was thinking about getting the NL or another Mako fly reel. Might have to go with the Mako.

    Is it really worth buying an NL 8x42?

    Guys, an obsolete binocular is unacceptable. You know the remedy; do something about it. :) It's only money and you're a long time dead in the end.

    Is it really worth buying an NL 8x42?

    I looked at a 10x42 NL at Cabelas and thought they were fantastic. I noticed the huge FOV and clarity right away. I will probably get the 12x42 NL since I have the 10x42 HT. Don't really need the NL since my HTs are just fine but can't stand not owning the latest and greatest. I never once...

    The Inspiration for NL's Shape

    I have a pair of the Swarovski SL seen in post #3. I bought them in 1989 and loved them despite their heavyweight construction and terrible focus wheel. To me, they're by far the best-looking and rugged porros ever made. I gave them to my cousin several years ago but he despised their weight...
